Theme: Whether your job is vital to society or rather unusual, it’s important to find a job you love.

Worksong by Gary Paulsen and illustrated by Ruth Wright Paulsen is a lyrical presentation of people at work.

As another workday begins, LeVar heads off to a busy breakfast spot and speculates on all the jobs there are to do. We explore a wide variety of jobs — ordinary and unusual — all pieces of the puzzle that fit together to make up our world of work.
